For the Focused Accountant

It’s not difficult for accountants to get lost in a spreadsheet — that is, until they get distracted. Help create a distraction-free zone with a pair of noise-cancelling headphones so they can concentrate in a busy office environment. Looking for a more budget-friendly option? These wireless headphones might just do the trick.

For the Eco-Friendly Accountant

Forget smartphones. It’s all about the smart notebooks. Rocketbook gives you the ability to digitize and save your handwritten notes. Then you can use the app to access your notes whenever and wherever you need them. Think of it as part notebook, part iPad. And that’s not even the best part: Rocketbooks are good for the environment, allowing you to just wipe the pages clean and reuse them.

For the New Parents

Don’t miss the chance to take advantage of a good accounting pun, especially if it comes in the form of an adorable baby onesie. How do you record the plight of new mothers and fathers who are balancing the struggles of parenting a newborn? Just debit Baby and credit Cash, Sleep and Free Time. If only taking care of a baby were as easy as recording a journal entry.

For the Accountants who Cook

You don’t want an accountant who cooks the books, but what do you give an accountant who just loves to cook? This minimalist apron from MahaloMemories’ Etsy shop is perfect for those accountants who spend all their free time in the kitchen and also appreciate a good pun.

You can feel good about purchasing from the MahaloMemories boutique because they’re committed to contributing to a healthy thriving planet and plant one tree for each item they sell.

For the Organized Accountants

You probably know how messy desks can get. Surprise the accountant in your life with a personalized desk organizer that blends functionality with a touch of sophistication. This docking station is a practical gift designed to streamline any accountant’s workspace, and the customizable option adds a special and thoughtful touch.

For the Newly Licensed CPA

Have a friend who recently got their CPA license? Or a family member who just passed their exams? Gift them this celebratory t-shirt so they can show off their accomplishment.

For the Coffee Lover (or Alcoholic)

It’s no secret that accountants need a lot of coffee for those long busy season hours. With this simple “Yes, you are being billed for this” mug, they’ll be able to get their caffeine fix and remember to bill for their time. Not a coffee drinker? Consider these “LIFO the party” beer and wine glasses for those accountants who prefer their liquor.

Don’t Forget the Card

You can’t give a gift without a card. RuBook Creative has an entire collection of accounting-themed holiday cards.

As it turns out, not even Santa is immune from the U.S. tax code in this fun Christmas card that somehow manages to connect Santa with the IRS. And accountants in public accounting are bound to appreciate this Christmas wishlist to help alleviate their busy season burdens.
